  • ½ pound bacon
  • 1 pound ground beef
  • 3 cups water
  • 2 cups elbow macaroni noodles
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 cups shredded colby & monterrey jack cheese



  1. The first thing you will do is cook the ground beef. You can add seasoning if you like, but the bacon added to this cheeseburger macaroni will give it enough of a salty taste.
  2. Then, you will want to cook your bacon. You can either cook the bacon in whole strips and then cut them down to size or you can start off with smaller pieces first.
  3. When the hamburger is done, let it drain all the grease from the meat using a strainer/colander. Then, quickly clean the same frying pan (or even a quick rub with a wet washcloth should do the trick) and add your water into it.

  4. Place some salt in the frying pan with water and turn the heat on medium high. It will start to boil, and you can then add in your macaroni noodles.

  5. When the macaroni noodles are cooked, most of the water should be evaporated from the frying pan. If there is any remaining, you can strain these. Then, add butter, milk and shredded cheese to the macaroni noodles.

  6. Once the butter has melted almost all the way, you can add the hamburger. Give it a good stir, and then add in your bacon. That's really all there is to it!
